Wildwoods Events Preview - March 2019

March can be a month of great contradictions.

The old saying "in like a lion, out like a lamb" often holds true, though there's no accounting for Mother Nature's week-to-week mood this time of year.

What we can say for certain is that longer days are coming (daylight saving begins on March 10) and winter's days are numbered, at least according to the calendar (the first day of spring is March 20).

In the Wildwoods, the annual "reawakening" will intensify, with more and more businesses opening their doors in the weeks to come.

While the island's events calendar will kick into another gear next month, traditional St. Patrick's Day celebrations (weekend of March 15-17) serve as a major mile marker on the road to beach 'n boardwalk season.

Meanwhile, the Wildwoods Convention Center's schedule begins to pick up, with a variety of weekend events.

Here's a quick look at what's happening in the Wildwoods this month...
